    Pros

    CVS has a friendly work environment. You really need to work as a team to bring the whole store forward. The good thing is that the teamwork and positive colleague relationships are present.

    Cons

    It can get stressful when the store is busy. You need to worry about your assigned tasks of the day, delivering great customer service, and may be interrupted to complete other priorities or tasks that may come up.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    company is changing their product line in order to continue to improve the quality of health especially by eliminating tobacco products in 2014.

    Cons

    at times the expectations are too unrealistic when challenged with minimal hours allocation versus budgeted sales plans especially while attempting to deliver excellent customer service

    Advice to Management

    walk the stores during unplanned visits to get a more realistic idea on how difficult it can be to deliver a clean and neat store with minimal hours while still being graded on customer service efforts
